For the 2010 model year, Cadillac will produce an all new SRX based on the Provoq concept vehicle.[1] The production car will use the all-wheel drive GM TE Premium platform, which is mostly unique but shares many components with Theta and Epsilon II. The V8 has been dropped for this generation. The 2010 SRX will begin production in Summer 2009 to be sold as a 2010 model, and will have a starting price of $34,155.[2]

The first official pictures of the production vehicle were released on August 15, 2008.[3] The car was officially unveiled in January 2009. It comes with either a 3.0 liter V6 with direct injection derived from the 3.6 liter unit in the Cadillac CTS, or a 2.8 liter turbocharged V6.[4]
